School class visits and author events

Class Visits

Class visits to a library can be arranged with any Newcastle Library.  We have a range of options to promote reading for pleasure amongst your students, such as story times, library activities or an opportunity to borrow books. These can be regular events or one-off sessions. Please email us at if you would like to arrange a class visits. 

Alternatively, you can invite a librarian along to attend your school assembly to let children know what's happening in our libraries.
